May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer. (Psalm 19:12-14)
When we sin as believers and either refuse or neglect to ask for forgiveness, we become estranged from God. I call this being out of fellowship with God. It’s the second level of our relationship with Him and it’s earthly and conditional. We don’t lose our salvation over this, but our relationship can be interrupted, and we may miss out on blessings we would have otherwise received. We remain in this state until we confess and receive forgiveness at which time we’re immediately purified from all our unrighteousness (1 John 1:9) and restored to fellowship. Jack Kelley
Jonah dishonored God in refusing to obey His orders, and to go on the errand on which he was sent.
God has many ways of bringing to light concealed sins and sinners, and many will not be brought to prayer unyil they are frightened to it.
